Michigan-based container manufacturer becomes certified recycler
LANSING, MI — A Michigan-based single-serving container manufacturer has earned Michigan Recycling Coalition recycling certification. Dart Container Corporation, located in Mason, gained the third-star certificate in MRC’s recognition program for their significant in-house waste reduction and recycling efforts.
The MRC’s recycling certification program allows participants to document and promote their recycling efforts through what has become a recognizable and reliable vehicle. “By simply establishing in-house waste reduction and recycling policies and procedures, Dart set the stage for companywide commitment to resource conservation and recycling,” Kerrin O’Brien, MRC executive director said. In the MRC Recycling Certification Program, applicants must demonstrate a high level of recycling knowledge and commitment.
Dart is an excellent example of a Michigan business taking its recycling responsibilities, seriously. In addition to its in-house recycling efforts, Dart has established more than 40 polystyrene drop-off locations in over 30 counties in Michigan. Dart works with hundreds of public schools, 5 state universities, and the State of Michigan to recycle all types of foam polystyrene products.
The recycling certification program is designed to give businesses, municipalities, manufacturers, schools, households and neighborhood associations the opportunity to evaluate existing systems, be recognized for what they are doing and find ways to do more.
Nearly a dozen certifications have been awarded since the program began in 2008 and several are in the works for 2011. Those certified include: Schupan Recycling, Battle Creek; Uni-Solar Ovonics, Auburn Hills; Bata Plastics, Inc., Grand Rapids; Mel Trotter Ministries, Grand Rapids; ReCellular, Inc., Dexter ; Nichols Paper & Supply Co., Spring Lake; Alloy Exchange, Inc., Rockford ; Eaton County Dept. of Resource Recovery; City of Huntington Woods; Southeast Oakland County Resource Recovery Authority; City of Berkley; and Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County. Benefits are determined by the recycling level reached by the applicant and range from a certified recycler window clings, plaque and certificate, recognition on the MRC website, to a link to the certified recycler’s website.
Details and application procedures are available by calling the MRC at 517-974-3672 or via the website: MichiganRecycles.org..
